Bangladesh’s ready-made garments (RMG) sector is a crucial driving force of the economy, but women are significantly underrepresented in management, with 95% of line supervisor jobs held by men.

 

Women can make a much more significant contribution to growth, leadership and innovation in the RMG sector if we invest in upskilling women workers, promote safe, healthy and women-friendly working conditions and ensure strong representation of women at all management levels.

We work with women to equip them for mid-management positions and work with factories to ensure a conducive working environment for women to thrive. At the industry level, we advocate for policies to encourage gender equality in management.

The safeguarding training by BRAC has helped us achieve and maintain a safe working environment for all of our employees. I believe safeguarding training is a mandatory mechanism and every organisation should practice it".
